MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Experts say Vermont is at the height of the late-spring, early-summer song-bird season - the time when many species return to the state from their wintering grounds and the state’s forests are alive with their songs.

John Buck, the migratory bird biologist with the Vermont Department of Fish and Wildlife, says the presence of the song birds provide a great opportunity for birders.

He says that for beginning birders, the variety of birds can be overwhelming, but with practice, people can learn to identify nearly two-dozen species by their songs alone.

He calls the hermit thrush, the Vermont state bird, “the Mozart of the bird world.”
